Real Madrid midfielder Fede Valverde has made it clear that he will not be making a move to Premier League club Chelsea during the summer transfer window. Despite being linked with other clubs due to the signing of Jude Bellingham, Valverde remains committed to his current team.
Valverde recently visited his first club Athletico Penarol in Uruguay, where they were naming a pitch after him. The emotional player was visibly moved when he saw the pitch with his name on it. “I’m probably going to go home and think about whether this is true or not,” Valverde said in an interview with Relevo.
When asked about the rumors of him joining Chelsea, Valverde was quick to clear the air. “No, no. I’m at Real Madrid. I try to enjoy it and leave my mark on this team that is the best in the world,” he said.
Valverde, who is known for his impressive performances on the field, racked up seven goals and four assists in 34 Premier League matches last season. Real Madrid finished second in Laliga with 78 points from 38 games.
As a midfielder, Valverde’s skills and tactics are crucial to Real Madrid’s success. He is an excellent passer, has great vision on the field, and can make quick decisions under pressure. His ability to control the midfield and create scoring opportunities for his team is what makes him a valuable player.
While Chelsea may have been hoping to add Valverde to their roster, they will have to look elsewhere. The midfielder’s loyalty to Real Madrid and his commitment to leaving his mark on the team will ensure that he remains an essential part of their lineup for the foreseeable future.
